Tomorrow marks my mother's 93rd birthday, I really miss her perils of wisdom and I carry her in my heart everyday. Tomorrow one of my sister's and our eldest niece will be hiking the 5 mile hike of the "Path of the Padres" I did this a few years ago and was completely out of shape hopefully I am in much better shape. My mother was a devout catholic so taking this hike on this day seems fitting. there is also another tradition that I will be doing in honor of my mother which is when I was a young girl my mother would take me on her birthday to get a "shamrock shake" (she loved those) so every year my husband, daughter, son and I get a shamrock shake. or if we are unable to we make our own. I look forward to tomorrow has I know I will be feeling my mother's spirit beside me.
